Special Services

We believe that all students can and must have an opportunity to reach their potential.  We provide a full continuum of services in the areas of Special Education and Section 504.  These services are provided to students who meet specific eligibility requirements outlined by the Federal and State Rules and Regulations.  An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed in collaboration with parents, general education teachers, and special services staff on an annual basis.
 
Students with disabilities who do not qualify for an individualized education program under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, may qualify for services under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 if the student (i) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (ii) has a record of a physical or mental impairment, or (iii) is regarded as having a physical or mental impairment.  Questions about the identification, assessment and placement of students should be directed to Clodagh McCall, Director of Special Services at (630) 827-4428.
